In Response To: Obit (Terry Greene)

I could not locate any "Elmer Lund" dying in Lake City, Iowa on January 1, 2001. However, I did locate an obituary for an "Elmer Lund" who died in Lake City on July 2, 2001. Lake City is in Calhoun County and Coon Rapids is in Carroll County. I could find no reference to Humboldt county. I am also including his wife's obituary who recently died.

March 27, 1914 --- July 2, 2001

Funeral services for Mr. Elmer Lund will be at 10:30 a.m. today (Thursday) July 5, 2001 at the

He was baptized as an infant at Ebenezer Lutheran Church near Audubon and confirmed in the Lutheran faith at Zion Lutheran Church near Manning in 1929. As a young boy he attended school at Aspinwall. He and Anna Schumacher were married on August 27, 1950, at Trinity Lutheran Church north of Coon Rapids by Pastor Stelling. Elmer was a retired farmer having farmed all his life. Following his marriage they farmed for one year near Coon Rapids, then farmed in Richland Township from 1952 until 1978 when they retired and moved into Glidden.
